Greens for Kelly: benefit dinner at Traders Point Creamery

Valentine Hill Farm, Traders Point Creamery and Slow Food Indy invite you to join us for a fundraiser dinner for Kelly Funk on Monday, September 13, at Traders Point Creamery.

Kelly and her husband John Ferree own Seldom Seen Farm, one of the most successful small-scale vegetable operations in Central Indiana. As many of you know, Kelly was struck by lightning on her farm on July 8, and currently remains in an acute care rehabilitation setting as she fights to regain full consciousness.

To help her family defray some of the significant costs of her ongoing medical care, her friends in the farming and local food community have put together a buffet of local, sustainably grown food for your enjoyment. On the menu will be artisan breads and cheeses, summer sausages, an array of creative salads, desserts from some of Indy’s best bakeries and a selection of beers, meads and wines. A cash bar will also be offered for those wishing to purchase extra drinks or desserts.

Tickets are $25 each, or $100 for a family of 5. Dinner will be served in both barns from 5-9 PM, with live entertainment in the Red Barn, an opportunity to bid on silent auction items and a chance to tour the farm.

Tickets are pre-sale only, and may be purchased at the Valentine Hill Farm booth at the Trader’s Point Creamery, Broad Ripple, Binford, Zionsville and City Market farmers markets, or e-mail Maria (maria [at] valentinehillfarm.com) to get tickets by mail.
